Radio host Howard Stern called Monday for former “The Daily Show” anchor Jon Stewart to run for president — stating that the popular comedian “owes it to his country to run.”

Stern said he came to the conclusion after watching a “ton” of old videos featuring Stewart, including his debates with former Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly.

The shock jock likened Stewart’s career arc to that of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who was a well-known comedian before entering politics.

Stern said the following about Stewart during his SiriusXM radio show:

“When Jon Stewart hosted ‘The Daily Show,’ they said that he was the most trusted newsman in the country. Like Walter Cronkite trustworthy… The guy is so f–king smart and bright and also witty and really measured when he takes on a debate,” Stern added. “He knows how to talk. You know he would work his ass off to be a good president. I’m telling you, he could also win, because people like Jon Stewart…  he owes it to his country to run. A lot more work, but the guy would be terrific and I think he’d do it.”

Stern’s co-host, Robin Quivers, praised Stewart but countered the idea of Stewart running for the Oval Office since he couldn’t handle hosting  “The Daily Show” because it became “too much.”

Stewart also shut down the idea last year, when a viral Politico column floated him as a potential candidate in 2024.

“Ummm…No thank you,” Stewart tweeted in response.
